From today’s L.A. Times regarding Ethier vs. Pierre:
But Ethier, 25, has more power, a better arm and will drive in more runs, tools that would make him more valuable off the bench.
Your new additions to the Dodgers’ 2008 bench who also fit this criteria:
Russell Martin, Jeff Kent, Matt Kemp, Andruw Jones, and James Loney.
It’s kind of like saying in the early 1960′s: “Koufax: strikes out a ton of hitters, has thrown no-hitters, wins 20+ games a year… tools that would make him more valuable in mop-up duty.”
Very boneheady, Kevin.
